[Itami City, Hyogo Prefecture] To the chosen town! – Start of three new child-rearing measures. ―
We will expand child-rearing measures and start three new
child-rearing measures as “Itami”, a city where people want to live and continue to live.
1. Start of two free services!
Starting in July 2023, we will make medical expenses
(outpatient/hospitalization expenses) up to junior high school students + hospitalization expenses for high school students free of charge without income restrictions!
2. Free childcare for the second child!
From September 2023, we will start free childcare fees for the second child of households that leave two or more children at a preschool facility at the same time without income restrictions. In addition, for households with an annual income of less than 3.6 million yen, childcare fees for the second child will be free regardless of the age of the first child.
3. Every elementary school has a “Children’s Club” that cares for children, and childcare hours can be extended from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm for all grades. Starting in 2023, during the summer vacation period, lunch will be provided to those who request it (for a fee, excluding Saturdays and the Obon period) to support working parents!
